wins the prestigious Ispo Textrends 2021/2022 award
Maglificio Ripa, the historic Italian textile company in business since 1952, wins the prestigious Ispo Textrends 2021/2022 award with the ECO162AX fabric made with premium Sensil Ecocare yarn by Nilit Fibers. A sustainable, pre-consumer 6.6 nylon in combination with recycled Roica Eco Smart elastomer for a 100% green fabric.
The international technical jury of Ispo Munich, the most important trade fair in the world dedicated exclusively to the sports sector, selected over five hundred fabrics deemed as the most performing, elegant, and above all, the most eco-respnsible.
“This recognition rewards our commitment to technological research and environmental sustainability – underlines Luca Bianco, Chief Executive of Maglificio Ripa Ltd – and that fills us with pride especially in a moment as historical as this one. Many years ago we were among the first pioneers in eco-responsible textiles, recognized in 1996 by Centrocot with Oeko Tex certification, and in recent years, with ever-increasing demand, we have found ourselves positioned one step ahead in being able to guarantee our customers an offering that represents 100% Italian quality with a green spirit. This all leads us to imagine an increasingly sustainable and certified textile sector for the foreseeable future, and we are ready for this ambitious challenge”.
